ASUS Gearing Up to Launch Their Strix Flare RGB Keyboard

ASUS is looking to introduce another keyboard solution to the market in the form of the Strix Flare RGB keyboard. The Strix Flare doubles down on the RGB goodness that has consumers diving for such products. It uses Cherry MX RGB switches (RGB Silver, Silent RGB Red, Silent RGB Black, Silent RGB Nature White); there's a white diffuser platform under the switches to more homogeneously spread the lighting effects; and the left and right sides of the keyboard sport LEDs that glow on users' desks. The clear plastic on the top right of the keyboard also basks in RGB goodness, and there are a couple of ASUS-branded stickers, and a single user-customizable one, that users can install there to achieve a desired RGB logo effect. All of this RGB goodness can be calibrated and individually controlled via ASUS' proprietary AURA Sync app.

Lighting and macros are adjustable and selectable on the fly; there are various media-dedicated controls on the left side of the keyboard, and there's profile configuration with ASUS' Armoury utility. The Strix Flare sports a detachable palm rest, USB pass-through, and is a wired affair that weighs in at 1,2 Kg with the cable, and should be available soon.

Nice keyboard but I may be biased with this statement, but It seems corsair has really nailed everything in the RGB department. I honestly cant go anywhere else.

I wouldn't call it biased....I would call it Product Loyalty. Keyboard and mice will always be Logitech for me. Motherboards will always be Asus. Nice looking keyboard btw.

Nice. You cannot buy cherry silent black in the EU at all.
I am waiting to replace my old keyboard like a really long time.
